1# Obtaining DragonFly for your system
2
3## CD Images
4
5
6DragonFly CDs are 'live', meaning these CDs will boot your system
7and let you log in as root (no password). You can use this feature to
8check for hardware compatibility and play with DragonFly a little before
9actually installing it on your hard drive. The CD includes an installer
10that can be run at the console, or (experimentally) via a web browser.
11Make sure you read the
12<a href="/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/~checkout~/src/nrelease/root/README">README</a>
13file for more information. To activate the installer, boot the CD and
14login as 'installer'.
15See the 'Download Site' list below for a list of download locations.
16
17## Obtaining source via git
18
19Since DragonFly 2.1 the source repository is maintained with git instead of CVS. See
20<a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/cgi/web-man?command=development&section=ANY">development(7)</a>
21for instructions how to clone the repository.

23## Other Sites

26Daily DragonFly events and news are reported at the
27<a href="http://www.shiningsilence.com/dbsdlog/">DragonFly BSD Digest</a>.

30## Current Working Set
31
32
33DragonFly is under major development so while we do have a release cycle
34there are often better choices. We have daily snapshots and we have
35preview snapshots of current development. First-time DragonFly users are
36probably best served using a preview snapshot. These snapshots can be
37located at <a href="ftp://ftp.dragonflybsd.org/iso-images/">ftp://ftp.dragonflybsd.org/iso-images</a>.
38Daily snapshots are available at <a href="http://chlamydia.fs.ei.tum.de/pub/DragonFly/snapshots/">http://chlamydia.fs.ei.tum.de/pub/DragonFly/snapshots/</a>.
39
40
41
42
43DragonFly systems based on current development are labeled PREVIEW or
44DEVELOPMENT. People who want to keep up with recent developments but who
45do not want the absolute bleeding-edge-likely-to-crash-in-bad-ways work
46should use PREVIEW. People who want the bleeding edge should use the
47HEAD of the git tree which are marked DEVELOPMENT. <i>We used to have
48something called STABLE and CURRENT. Those no longer exist. STABLE has
49been renamed to PREVIEW and CURRENT has been renamed to DEVELOPMENT.</i>

52## DragonFly Releases
53
54
55Releases occur approximately twice a year. DragonFly release branches
56<b>only contain bug and security fixes</b> and are designed for people
57running production systems who don't want any surprises. Brand-new
58features often discussed on the mailing lists are typically not
59in release branches.
60
61
62
63The current release is <a href="release2_0.shtml">DragonFly 2.0.X-RELEASE</a>.
64
65
66
67DragonFly systems based on releases are labeled RELEASE. For example,
68you might be running <b>DragonFly X.Y.Z-RELEASE</b>. The subversion is
69bumped on a daily basis when commits have been made to the release branch
70that day and can become quite large. For example, 1.4.75.
